payments totaling up to $114 million if two products are

About Anesiva and its Diverse Pipeline of Pain Products
Anesiva, Inc. is a late-stage biopharmaceutical company that seeks to be the leader in the development and commercialization of novel pharmaceutical products for pain management. The company's first commercial product, Zingo(TM), is available in the U.S. for the reduction of pain associated with peripheral venous access procedures in children ages three to 18. For full Zingo prescribing information and other information, visit http://www.zingo.com. An sNDA is under review at FDA to expand the Zingo label indication to include adults.
The next product in Anesiva's pipeline, Adlea(TM), is currently being evaluated in Phase 3 clinical trials for the management of acute pain following orthopedic surgeries. Adlea has been shown to reduce pain after only a single administration for up to weeks to months in multiple settings based on the results of several mid-stage clinical trials for site-specific, acute and chronic, moderate-to-severe pain.
Anesiva is based in South San Francisco, CA. For more information about Anesiva's leadership in the development of products for pain management, and an overview of the clinical challenges being addressed by its product candidates, go to http://www.anesiva.com.
